My partner my daughter and myself went here for Sunday lunch. It's a nice cosy pub with a nice fire and a landlord who is very attentive and pleasant . It was not busy except for a few locals,one off them was very loud. Which is fine we just felt some music was needed to drown her out. As we... More

Chose this place due to its good reviews and was not disappointed. All 4 of us had excellent main courses and enjoyed the generous helpings so we split 2 desserts between us. Having a starter would have probably spoiled the experience. Excellent all round.

Just outside of Barnstaple in the village of Goodleigh is the New Inn. There is a car park at the back but be careful as the entrance is very tight. Inside the pub is small with a fireplace on the left hand side. We booked for five of us and were shown to our table by the fire when we... More

My partner and I had an evening meal last week. Landlord runs a very well stocked and clean bar. Pump beer was good with a nice choice. Selection of meals on the menu all looked very good and our food was excellent all round. Will be returning with friends soon as already booked a return visit. Well worth a visit... More

Five of us went to the New Inn for Sunday lunch, we all had different meals off the menu board and none of us were disappointed. The portions were generous and the menu was varied enough to cater for everyone's taste. I particularly liked the fact there wasn't a printed menu as this to me indicates that the menu is... More

Went for the Christmas menu meal, I had the venison pie and my wife went traditional, both meals were excellent as well as the starters, sweets and home made mince pies. There was absolutely nothing to complaint about just loads of praise.

It's my understanding that I booked this restaurant on the 26th of November with a lady for the 3rd of December. We turned up at the booking time of 19.30 and the gentleman had no note of the booking. I couldn't confirm that I had booked this specific restaurant as I had used a landline to book. However, the gentleman... More

You are closer than you think to wonderful home cooked food, great ales and fantastic company. Justin and Julia look forward to welcoming you to the friendliest of village free houses in rural Goodleigh, North Devon. We specialise in high quality home cooked pub fare, with traditional British favourites offered alongside exotic dishes from further afield. Relax in charming surroundings whilst sampling well kept ales that have had us listed in the Good Beer Guide for 3 years running. If you like trying something different our menu board is always changing to incorporate seasonal local meats, fish and vegetables. We can accommodate all needs, from a romantic table for two, family parties, or just about anything you had in mind.
